Presenting the only train ride experience behind an authentic, historic locomotive in the Sacramento area, California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum & Foundation are proud to offer history-rich weekend excursion trains on the Sacramento Southern Railroad that begin on April 7 & 8, 2018. Each weekend through September 2018, guests can enjoy relaxing and memorable excursion train rides along the picturesque Sacramento River and waterfront pulled by either a vintage steam locomotive or a historic diesel locomotive depending on the weekend.
or can be purchased in-person starting at 10:30 a.m. the day of the train ride (based on availability) at the Central Pacific Railroad Depot ticket office that will be relocated to the Central Pacific Passenger Station (Front & J Streets) in Old Sacramento State Historic Park. Excursion trains depart from the adjacent Central Pacific Railroad Freight Depot (on Front between J & K Streets) on-the-hour from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the weekends the trains are running.
Regular excursion train tickets cost $12 for adults, $6 for youths (ages 6-17), and ages five and under ride free. For passengers desiring a first class train ride experience, tickets cost $24 for adults, $16 for youths and are free for children five and under. First class train tickets often sell out early so guests are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance.

If summer temperatures reach 100 degrees or higher, trains may be cancelled for the remainder of that day.
